Franking Commission

Posted by liloladenvers on July 26, 2009

Some Republican members of Congress want to send a chart to their constituents.  The Congressional Franking Commission is blocking the mailing. 

This information came from themoderatevoice.com:

Rep. John Carter (R-Texas), the secretary of the House Republican Conference and a former District Court Judge, is having his messages to constituents censored by Democrats on the Franking Commission. Republicans are no longer allowed to use the words “government run health care” in the communications to their constituents.

Carter received an email from the Franking Commission informing him of the censorship.

“What we proposed as language was as follows, ‘House Democrats unveiled a government-run health care plan,’” Carter said. “Our response from Franking was, ‘You cannot use that language. You must use, ‘The House majority unveiled a public option health care plan,’ which is Pelosi-speak or ‘just last week the House majority unveiled a health care plan which I believe will cost taxpayers…’”

Check out the chart showing the bureaucratic nightmare that would evolve!
